This is when I wish I were 59 instead of 61. I would have been a great candidate for your pilot program down 16 lbs with 15 more to get to 135.
I have an immune disorder, and my inflammation is gone. My elbows and other joints aren’t swollen. I am not complaining all the time about aches and pains. I eliminated all grains, most preservatives, no sodas, or added sugar, and I am doing intermediate fasting.
If I could tell my younger self something, it would be to take care of yourself and lose the carbs.
